    1) Stay in touch - any time, anywhere
    2) Stay in touch - anytime, anywhere
    3) Stay in touch - anywhere, any time
    4) Stay in touch - anywhere, anytime

    1 or 3. ('Anywhere' is one word, though you wouldn't be the first native speaker to use it as though it were two )

    "Any place" is widely used to mean 'anywhere'. Though it's frowned on in some circles in the UK, it'd certainly not be out of place in an ad for a mobile phone - which'd be a pioneer among such ads if it used Br English!
