iPhones have  a configuration to setup your mail account with an exchange server. Once you put in all the correct credentials, you can then sync calendar, contacts, etc.

This should be fairly straightforward with an iPhone settings:
1) Touch settings on iPhone
2) Touch Mail, Contacts, Calendars
3) Touch Add Account
4) Touch Exchange
5) Add email, password, domain
6) Select the pieces of exchange you want to sync

The user should have all their exchange items on their phone. You can also do this exercise for any corporate Google Apps account. I have my Google Apps account with gmail, Google calendar, etc. setup on my iPhone 5s.

Hmmm, the fact that it is bringing over some of the contacts is a good sign. I am not sure why all 900 are not migrating over.

One thing about Contacts...are they emailed contacts or actual contact records? Typically, the phone will not sync Emailed Contacts.

Unfortunately, I need a little more information from you to help any further. There must be some unique aspect to the contacts you were able to migrate. Not sure how to troubleshoot without more information.
