I tried a lot of way to fix it but no chance.
now I have an imei like 0049...
is there anyone to help me here?
You lost your original IMEI and you have a "developer" IMEI now.
If you made a backup of your /efs partition before you might be able to restore it (please search for threads handling this yourself).
If you do not have a backup - bad luck (I myself have a Note like this).
Starting with ICS and JB there is a check for the IMEI in android.policy.jar. If you have a 0049... no luck.
You can try to change your SIM Pin (old one can be equal to new one) - this can activate your SIM card.
Alternative: an old android.policy.jar from an early leaked Samsung release...
