Default [Q] IMEI Problem

I don't know whether here is place for it or not but i couldn't find any solution anywhere else. I bought my W nearly 1.5 years ago. Since one month earlier, everything has been fine. But then I received a message saying ''Your IMEI number is clonned, please contact with your firm.'' I went there and they said the very only solution is to bind IMEI to one phone number. This is very important for me because I use my phone for connecting net on my PC via USB Tethering and for this everytime I have to switch SIM Card. Now, I have two questions about this;

1) Is there any other legal option to do but bind the IMEI to just one stable phone?
2) If not or it's the only legal choice, what can I do to use another SIM on my phone?

Are you using Stock ROM/Firmware? Have you tried to Factory Reset your device?(Backup your files if you are planning to do so) If Factory Reset won't work, try re-Installing Stock Firmware.

Changing ROM either stock or custom won't change your IMEI. Some says you can change it using a program but I'm not sure though. In some country, changing it is illegal and punishable by law.

Yea, in my country it is illegal. But I don't want to change my IMEI, I just am asking whether there is a way to use another SIM Card when my phone's IMEI is stuck with only one stable phone number. But it seems now there is no way.

I'm a bit confused mate cause in my country we can always use different kinds of SIM Card, of course with our own country's communication networks (globe, smart, talk n text, touch mobile, sun, etc.) as long as our phone is not locked to a specific network but it can be unlock too both prepaid and post paid.
