Connect 2 cell phones to Prius Bluetooth

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.

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.

For a 2004-2005 Prius, this is listed in the Navigation Owner's Manual. I'm guessing that the Bluetooth section was moved into the main Owner's Manual for 2006/2007, but I do not have a copy of one of these manuals to point out the section. In the 2004 Prius Navigation Owner's Manual, it's in the "Other Functions - Hands-Free system" section," specifically on pages 110-112. There's a section for "Enter the Bluetooth Phone" and "Select the Bluetooth Phone."
I may have mis-spoke. You can have up to 4 Bluetooth phones registered with the car, but only one at a time may be paired. You select which phone (of those that are registered with the car) to pair at any given time.
INFO > Telephone > Settings scroll down to...
Bluetooth: use the "Entry" button for registering/pairing a new phone (enter the PASS-KEY) Bluetooth: use the "Settings" button to verify which phone is connected via the "Bluetooth Information" screen Select Telephone: use the "Select" button to choose which of the entered phones to connect via the "Select Telephone" screen
