Expert Opinions Needed: Best way to Sync Public Contact Folder to multiple Blackberry devices

I was wondering if anyone else ran across a problem like this.  We need a way to have 10 Blackberry users be able to all see the same public contact folder on their devices.  Not only that they want to be able to edit a contact and have it update the main public folder.  All users want to be able to do this wirelessly.  
   Currently we have them using the USB cable and desktop manager, but eventually things get corrupt.

Does anyone have any recommendations or has anyone come across this same end user request?

Hi, to confirm BES 5.0.x will only allow users to "View" public folders so to confirm this will not allow public entries to be added, edited or removed.  You may need to look at Add2Exchange (syncs public items to personal folders) or applications such as WickSoft (http://www.wicksoft.com).

I have BES Express configured however the way it seems to be working for me at least is a one way sync only from Exchange to Handheld.

When I spoke to sales they told me two way sync was possible in BES5.  But with the actual product in hand this does not seem to be the case.
