From  Caller ID and Caller ID Blocking FAQs | Verizon Wireless

To block your number from being displayed temporarily for a specific call:

  1. Dial *67.
  2. Enter the number you wish to call (including area code).
  3. Tap the Call button. The words "Private," "Anonymous," or some other indicators will appear on the recipient's phone instead of your mobile number.

You've successfully blocked Caller ID for a specific call.

Note: Calls to 800 numbers and 911 can't be Caller ID-blocked.
