No it doesnt.
To sync shared contacts, you need to create a mailbox called shared - and add shared contacts to that mailbox > then share it.

Hi sunnyc7,

Do you mean use some 3rd party app to copy the contents of all the public folders to the contacts folder in the "shared" mailbox?  Then sync both the user's mailbox and the "shared" mailbox to the Iphone?

Thanks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

even if you create a mailbox and share it that will not solve your issue. as active sync can only link to one mailbox at a time on an iphone or windows mobile phone.

I use Easy2sync for outlook to sync from a public folder to a private folder. It works great
