That IP is on those lists precisely because it is a dynamic address.
Getting another address won't help; it will also be on those lists.

And this is how it should be.  Your IP shouldn't be sending email
directly to the recipient's mail server.  If you *are* running your own
mail server, you should be smart-hosting through Verizon's email server.
 If you're not running your own server, the presence of your IP won't
matter when sending to properly-configured mail servers.
