Iphone EAS Read Only Contacts

Im working a situation that requires users to have two Exchange Accounts on their iphone. One account is there user account (email, contacts, calnedar, notes), the other would be a shared account that is used for Contacts only.

My question: Is there a way to make this shared account READ ONLY. If i set the permissions on the contacts within exchange, will EAS on the iphone follow suit and force the READ ONLY? We don't want the users having the ability to write to these shared contacts from their phones and mess up the shared contacts that is being synced/distributed to all the employees who have access to this shared account.

I cannot see a way you can setup this on iPhone. You can try installing outlook on iPhone and set up the second account that way, but still, I cannot see how you can prevent sending e-mails from outlook. Outlook contacts definitely will appear in iPhone mail app together with other contacts.
