Caller ID is another feature that's on by default on your iPhone and a feature that everyone pretty much takes for granted these days. When people call your phone, you'll see their number appear on the screen while the phone is ringing. This lets you see if you recognize the number and decide whether to answer the call or not. When people whose phone numbers you have listed in your Contacts call your phone, you'll see their names appear in the same way you've entered them into your contacts. You can't turn off the ability to see the number or the names of the people calling you and frankly I can't think of a good reason to do so, but you can turn off the ability for others to see your Caller ID information when you call them.
Now whatever reason you have to hide your identity from your callers until they pick up is your own business, I'm just here to tell you how to do it. Go to Settings, Phone, Show My Caller ID, and here you can tap the switch to off. When you have Shown My Caller ID off and you place a call, the person receiving your call will see a variety of messages depending on the phone you're calling. They might see private call, or blocked number, or caller ID unavailable. These days a lot of people won't even pick up if they don't know who's calling and some businesses won't accept blocked calls, but if you ever need to turn off your Caller ID now you know where to do it.
Just remember to turn it back on when you're done concealing your identity.
