Blackberry play book tethering with blackberryQ10 problem

[ Edited ]

I got a blackberry curve 8900 phone and I have been trying to tether it with my blackberry playbook but it cant connect.
The Bluetooth for both connects fine and the two are able to get paired but when you get to the tethering process, after selecting the phone name on the playbook and entering the profile, it tries to connect and instead retains a message that "Phonename" can't be found.
The settings are okay but this is the problem. The OS version for the phone is 10.1.0.2342 and that of the playbook is 2.1.0.1526. I am wondering whether the OS is the issue and if not what might be the problem. Kindly help.

Please use plain text.

8900 can not run OS 10, do you have a Z10, Q10 or a Q5?

 

in bluetooth settings you can give you phone a name, do you have a name or yours?
