A Verizon phone that can be silenced with any button press

I'm looking for a (Verizon) dumb phone that will silence the ring when any exterior button is pushed.

I don't text or have a data plan, and need a basic phone (probably a flip phone), preferably cheap or free with a plan.
The sticking point is I absolutely require one feature: if the phone is ringing, I want to be able to silence it by pressing any of the buttons on the outside of the phone. I want to be able to silence it as soon as I can get my hands on it, instead of desperately fumbling to figure out where the correct teeny tiny button is located while it's ringing at an inappropriate time.
I cannot figure out why this feature isn't standard, but I've hunted down the manuals for several models (Verizon Wireless CDM8975, LG Revere, Samsung Convoy 2) and they all seem to require you to press a specific button to silence the ring.
Thanks for any models that you can suggest.
