Help ActiveSync Address Book

Hey Folks;

I finally got my mum to convert from an iPhone to an S3; she broke her iPhone and I twisted her arm.

Got a question, she has 3800 contacts in her Outlook address book that is tied to an Exchange server and sync'd by ActiveSync. Before you ask, yes, she literally has 3800 contacts. I have no idea why, but what can I do. She's a lawyer and apparently needs them.

So far only 1800 have went over. Does anyone know if there is a limit or anything? I recommended to her to move all her non-essential contacts to a second address book since ActiveSync for Android will only sync the primary groups in Exchange (i.e., primary calendar, primary contacts, etc.)
