Like any background-capable app in iOS4 you can quit it by double-tapping the home button in the home screen: a task bar will come up, find the icon of the app you want to kill there (swipe left to go through them), press and hold it until the remove icon comes up, then tap it to kill.

This is part of the bug, the act of the phone ringing errantly wakes ThumbJam up from the background. The way to avoid it is to kill ThumbJam using the procedure mentioned above if you don't plan on using it for a while. Then it won't be running in the background at all.

So sorry about this, it will be resolved in the next release (which has a bunch of new features, hence the delay).
