What is OBiPLUS?
OBiPLUS is a full-featured business collaboration solution for 1 to 12 users. IP phones and analog phones (connected to an OBi device) may be used as extensions. The OBiPLUS Small Business Solution is available in two annual subscription formats. The OBiPLUS 'Lite' Basic subscription is free and supports up to 4 users with support via the OBiTALK web forum. The OBiPLUS Premium subscription cost is $300 per year. A special introductory price is available now for only $120 per year. This OBiPLUS Premium subscription includes user capacity for up to 12 extensions, installation consultation and on-going support from Obihai via telephone, email and web forum.

Each OBiPLUS installation is comprised of a Master OBi and one or more Client OBi devices or IP phones. The Master OBi device is an OBi202 running OBiPLUS software. A Client OBi can be any OBi202, OBi100 or OBi110 device running generic software. A client may also be an IP phone that registers with the OBi202.  Although almost any SIP-based IP phone could be used with OBiPLUS, by way of a web-based configuration wizard, the OBiPLUS solution leverages Cisco's SPA50xG and SPA303 small business phones and SPA500S sidecar.

A Master OBi device can serve up to 12 Client OBi devices or 10 IP phones. The OBiPLUS system can be easily managed and supported via the OBiPLUS Configuration Wizard.  Normally, the Master OBi and Client OBi devices and IP phones are located in the same network (or subnet).

-  A Total of 12 Client Extensions May be Configured for Use with OBiPLUS

Analog Phone Extensions - 12 with Premium, 4 with Basic Subscription

So basically that would either be, two Obi202s, or one Obi202 and two Obi100/110?

Edit: The online wizard needs some work. It's too jargon heavy. Also try working backwards from phones , grouping, services (fax, voice mail), to ToD (Time of day), trunks, etc.
