400 bad request from twilio's REST API using twilio-ruby

I'm trying to get started with Twilio's REST API using the rubygem twilio-ruby, and I've hit a snag. Here's my code:

h = {:From => "123-123-1234", :To => "123-123-1234", :Body => "hey"}
account = Twilio::RestAccount.new(ACCOUNT_SID, ACCOUNT_TOKEN)
resp = account.request("/#{API_VERSION}/Accounts/#{ACCOUNT_SID}/SMS/Messages", 'POST', h)

Which gives the following output:

warning: peer certificate won't be verified in this SSL session
=> #<Net::HTTPBadRequest 400 Bad Request readbody=true>

I've also tried:

h = {:From => "123-123-1234", :To => "123-123-1234", :Body => "hey"}
Net::HTTP.post_form URI.parse("http://api.twilio.com/2008-08-01/#{ACCOUNT_SID}/SMS/Messages"), h

Which give the following output:

Net::HTTPBadResponse (wrong status line: "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN\">"):

I'd appreciate any help.

Should have inspected the body of the resp:

<Message>The 'to' phone number provided is not yet verified for this account.  While your account is in Trial Mode, you may only send SMS messages to verified numbers.  Upgrade to a Full Twilio account to send to any phone number.</Message>
