You can continue to use the same contacts and organizers, just by copying the 
relevant sections of ~/.kde.  You don't say which distro this is.  If it is 
one that has kde3 and kde4  simultaneously, you will copy from ~/.kde to 
~/.kde4 - you may even find that it is done for you.

This will not be using akonadi based resources.  I think there have been some 
problems reported in migrating, so I'd recommend sticking with the older 
versions until we have some clear guidance on how to safely migrate.
