    Check under Restrictions and see if Facetime is turned off.

    I believe Kuwait not only doesn't allow sale of iDevices with Facetime they actively block any such feature so the Samsung option won't work. This is not an Apple issue it is an issue with the government.

    In some middle eastern countries those are also blocked or restricted.

    well they haven't even mentioned if they are aware of these alternatives, have tried using, see what errors they get. unless they are willing to do a little bit of work themselves, no-one can help them.

    No one can help them unless the government relents on their restrictions.
