Don't know about a list of countries but this is certainly possible in
the UK (for now, at least, until the government freaks out about it).
SIMs are widely available for purchase with no identity requirements and
can very often be topped up anonymously for cash via newsagents. As for
phones, it's been a while since I bought a new phone (although I suspect
that it is still possible to buy them new for cash) but of course second
hand ones are also widely available.
