Most likely, there are 2 options here:
a) while flashing, you messed with the EFS partition => your IMEI number is demo one (plenty of zeroes, ending with 49).
b) the phone, you have bought, was stolen and claimed. Then, the operator blocked the original IMEI, so it was forced
well, option a - got o service centre or try to restore IMEI.
option b) buy not stolen, legitimate device from legitimate seller, not from a thief.
