    Sorry, this is not possible by default with BES.

    If you want to use a third party software, then it is possible...

       It is not possible when Wireless synchronization is ON. n order to transfer Public folder data to a BlackBerry device you need to disable wireless sync for that item (e.g. Contacts). Once wireless is disabled you are only able to transfer data for that item via cable or Bluetooth.
    You have to install BlackBerry Desktop Manager to do this.
    In the New versions Intellisync Menu has been renamed as "Synchronize".

    Public Calendar Example

    * It is assumed you already have a Calendar in a public folder. You need to have BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed on your desktop.

    1. Ensure your shared calendar has permissions to allow BlackBerry users to access
    2. Open Desktop Manager
    3. Select "Intellisync" and then "configure pim"
    4. Select "Calendar" and click "choose"
    5. click "Browse" (at the bottom) and then choose the calendar in your public folder
    Public Contacts Example

    1. Open Blackberry Desktop Manager and connect your device
    2. Open the "Synchronize" application
    3. Once the Synchronize screen appears select the "Configuration" tab at the top
    4. On the Configuration tab select "Configure Synch.."
    5. Select the data type you wish to change e.g. Address Book
    6. When prompted select "Outlook"
    7. From the next screen you are able to choose which public Contact List you wish to sync with. You may also need to remove your current address book if that isn't required.

    Public Notes Example

    * It is assumed you already have a Notes Folder in a public folder.

    1. Ensure your shared notes has permissions to allow BlackBerry users to access
    2. Open Desktop Manager
    3. Select "Intellisync" and then "configure pim"
    4. Select "MemoPad" and click "choose"
    5. click "Browse" (at the bottom) and then choose the notes item in your public folder

    And also    
    WICKSoft Mobile Documents (WICKSoft Mobile Documents for BlackBerry) allows you to access Exchange public folders from your BlackBerry, including Calendars, Contacts, email messages, and even files.

    It also allows you to search Exchange folders (search for meetings, for contacts, etc..) and synch with your BlackBerry.
