We used to use forms based authentication for OWA for our users.

This gave them a nice login screen, where they could just enter their username and password.

In changing our exchange server configuration for iphone, we were told to disable forms based authentication.

Now when users browse to mail/exchange they are just prompted with a login box and must enter:
DOMAIN/username and password.

Is there a way to use forms authentication and have active sync still work? Or is there a way to configure it so they can just enter their username and password and do not have to enter the netbios name?

No. Once we enable FBA, active sync fails.

I would suggest you to please go ahead and check the IIS authentication.

1) Default Website : Annonymous & Integrated     NO SSL
2) Exadmin : Integrated                                    NO SSL
3) Exchweb : Annonymous                              NO SSL
4) Exchange: Basic                                        SSL Optional
5) RPC     : Basic                                        SSL Required
6) OMA     : Basic                                       SSL Optional
7) Public  : Basic+Integrated                         SSL Optional
8) exchange-oma : Basic & Integrated             NO SSL
9) Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync : Basic           SSL Optional

After that need to restart IIS service and check it.
