I would like to "consolidate" my outlook contacts

At the moment i have a public folder with all my contacts in (3,500 approx). I have them in a public folder so all my employees can view them and add new ones (10 employees).

I have an iPhone and would like those contacts synced to it, but i dont think the iPhone can sync contacts from an exchange account that reside in a public folder.

What i have at the moment is a "copy" of the contacts from the public folder in my default "contacts" section in Outlook so they sync with my phone. The problem is when one of my employees puts a new contact in the public folder as instructed they will not appear in the default contacts section of my account.

In folder assistant, this appears to be only for messages, as when you create a rule it says the Sent From and Sent to Fields you would put in.

this IS a public folder, but it does NOT hold messages only contacts.
