My wife and I each have GV accounts.  She uses her Google Voice number for her business and I use my Google Voice number for mine.  

So for each of us to have our own separate GV numbers connect via OBi100, would I need to purchase two (2) OBi100s and connect both of them to my router (and then separate phones to each), setting them each up on separate OBiTalk accounts?  Or is there a way to toggle between GV accounts on the OBi100 or via OBiTalk?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

The OBi will accomodate two Google Voice accounts.  Each Google Voice account can accomodate two calls.

Incoming calls on either account will ring the telephone connected to the OBi.

One of the accounts will be selected as the default service for outgoing calls.  To use the other account for an outgoing call you will need to prefix the number with **1 or **2 (depending on which account was designated the default service).

You will still only be able make or receive calls from one google voice account at a time, from the phone connected to the Obi. So if you need to use both accounts at the same time you should get 2 Obi's.

Of course, but he asked:

Or is there a way to toggle between GV accounts on the OBi100 or via OBiTalk?

Definition of toggle (http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/T/toggle.html):

To switch from one setting to another. The term toggle implies that there are only two possible settings and that you are switching from the current setting to the other setting.
