    check whether both the IMEI are same, the one on phone (*#06) and on one back of battery.
    update your phone with kies
    1, remove battery from the phone and DO NOT PUT BACK IN for the remainder of these instructions
    2, underneath the battery on the phone is the imei# and serial#
    3, you need the serial# and leave the battery out for this task
    4, now start Kies that is on your P.C and make sure you have a internet connection
    5, from the menu bar go to Tools and select firmware upgrade and initialization
    6, enter the model GT-I9300 (make sure its CAPITALS GT-I)
    7, enter serial# (CAPITALS again)
    8, press OK to initalize (dont worry you should not have a battery in )
    9, this will now give you the string = Initialised version PDA:*** / PHONE:*** / CSC:*** (***) this is what we want to see
    then press start update

    No need to bootup
    Switch off your phone
    press and keep holding the following combination of buttons: Volume Down, Home and Power buttons simultaneous.
    Now, when the ‘Warning!!’ message will be displayed release the buttons.
    After you released the buttons, press Volume UP button, for confirming that you want to enter into Download Mode Menu.
    Your Samsung Galaxy S4 device will display an Android logo colored in green, and an additional text message with the ‘Downloading… Do not turn off target’ text message under the green Android logo.
    These are the steps, you’re entering in the Download Mode Menu, and now you can connect your S4 device to the computer after the ODIN app is OPEN.

    did the seller told you that this is a official s4?
    if yes , he have cheated you
    and there are no firmware, you can try the s4 firmware but it will make more trouble
