Non-BES blackberry not syncing with contacts

I have a user with a blackberry however we have done away with the BES.  I added the account to her device using the "Other" option, entered the email address, password and the emails synced.  However the contacts did not.  Any advice?

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.

active synch is enabled on the exchange server from 2010 on, you may need to chat with your exchange admin to set up permissions to access.

Unless this is a Blackberry 10 there is no ActiveSync option without a third party tool.
Therefore if you want contacts to sync you have three options.

1. Reinstate BES.
2. Purchase a third party mail tool to do the sync and support ActiveSync.
3. Upgrade to a Blackberry 10 device.

POP3 will not give you contact sync - it only does the inbox, nothing else.

Contacts do not sync with pop3. Why did you get rid of BES?
