In most countries it's illegal to alter the imei so we can't really advise you. If you flash a custom rom there's a very small chance that the efs partition can be erased and wipe your imei, but normally the imei is deleted when a phone is blocked by the carrier. If you purchased it directly from your carrier then contact them regarding the issue (it'll be covered by warranty); if you purchased it from a third party then ask for your money back, as the phone may be stolen.
