I want to be able to connect 2 cell phones (my wife and mine) to the
Prius Bluetooth at the same time, so that any call comming in from
either phone will connect. I can connect one of the phones at a time,
but not both. The Prius asks if I want to delete the first one, when
connecting the second phone.

You can't do it.  It's inherent in Bluetooth.

Support the troops:  Bring them home ASAP.

The Prius can be paired with up to 4 Bluetooth cell phones.  However,
only one can be active at a time (using the microphone and and speaker
system to carry on a conversation).  You can choose which Bluetooth
cell phone should connect with the Prius by going to the Bluetooth
Phone Settings page, and Selecting from the scroll-down menu choices
the Telephone Selection setting.  (The Prius acts like a Bluetooth
headset.)  You shouldn't have to delete the 1st phone to connect the
2nd one, as the Prius can store up to 4 phones.

What do you think would happen if both your cell phone and your wife's
cell phone each received a call at the same time?  Or if the phones
called each other?  That is why only one phone can be connected at a
given time.

I realize only one phone can be used at a time. I do not understand
how to pair 4 Bluetooth cell phones? Can you explain this process?

I was asked to checked the owners manual again. The 2006 owners manual
has a large section on Handsfree. I finally found the section you were
refering to. In 2006 up to 6 cell phones can be registered. I was able
to register both phones after a couple of tries.

Switching between registered phones takes a few steps but can be done.
