Sync Shared Contacts from Outlook to iPhone

by rdbovard / December 5, 2011 3:08 AM PST

Does anyone know of a way to sync shared contacts in Outlook to an iPhone?

I have created a folder at work with all of our customers' info and shared it throughout the office. Everyone loves it and is able to access, edit, etc. on their computers, but I am the only one able to access it from my phone.

I have found workarounds to get it onto others' phones, but they require copy/paste and physical updating. And to be honest, our president just isn't going to take the time to do that.

Does anyone know a way to do this? Maybe third-party software that doesn't cost $1,000+?

Thanks. We use an Exchange server so I was hoping to be able to do this wirelessly, but using iTunes may be the best bet. I will try that and report back.

Thanks again.
