Groundwire is a proprietary iPhone application with an imposing price tag to bring it up to spec for OSTN. It's available through the Apple app store for US$9.99 as crippleware, which disables three things, NAT detection, g729 audio codec and outgoing ZRTP. For an additional US$24.99 "in-app purchase" you can repair the outgoing ZRTP call feature so a single user may make a secure outgoing call.

Groundwire was registered successfully with the test bed. It was able to make an outgoing call. The hardware was an original iPhone with firmware 3.1.3
