If it was that easy... KDE Resources is "depreciated", you will find 
that any Contacts created that way is "read-only". It is now done in 
Akonadi Resources - where I have tried all logical and a few more ways 
of creating, deleting, re-creating etc. my Personal Contacts.

No, it simply is not working in 4.8 and I am very far from the only one 
having the problem. I reverted to 4.7.4 despite my liking other aspects 
of 4.8 much better. But I NEED my KMail to work - and Distribution Lists 
also stopped working in 4.8
