Can you solve this cipher? I know the repetition of numbers holds some significance, but can't really put a finger on how exactly. Any help will be appreciated.

    $\begingroup$ Hi, and welcome to PSE! I interpreted your plea for help as a clever disguise for the finger clue, but just in case it wasn't: any puzzles posted from somewhere else must, as a minimum, have the source clearly stated. All in all, it's a nice puzzle, happy to have you here. Oh, and do remember to take the Tour! $\endgroup$

This short message really needs putting your finger on it.

It says


and the lack of white space and punctuation seems to indicate that the cipher was created

without actually having an old (but famously indestructible) Nokia phone in hand.


it looks like tap code from old phones, using that logic the answer is:

hey google


44=h, 33=e,999=y and so on.
