As I still used KDEPIM 4.4.11 as of what Wheezy includes now, the personal 
addressbook worked nicely. It saves contacts into ~/.local/share/akonadi just 

AFAIR I migrated back then by having a traditional address book with std.vcf 
and the personal addressbook (vcard folder) with ~/.local/share/akonadi and 
just copied all contacts over. Then I removed the old one.

The address book in KDEPIM 4.4.11 already uses Akonadi.

Korganizer can optionally use Akonadi via a resource bridge. I had it running 
with Akonadi, although it was a bit cumbersome to configure. I think I switched 
it to Akonadi configuration as I had some issues with the old configuration from 
older KDEPIM releases.
