Just to be clear, you have never rooted the phone and KNOX isn't tripped? If so, you can just get it fixed under warranty, because I can assume you do not have an EFS backup and without that you cannot fix ti yourself.

Just turn the phone in for repair under warranty if you bought the phone, btw changing IMEI number is illegal and cannot be discussed on XDA
