Port 5060 is blocked in our network, and I was wondering if it was possible to change it to 5222, which is a port used by Google Talk. If it is possible and I do change it, will I still be able to use VOIP properly? Will there be any connectivity issues?

Thank you.

How do you plan to "change it" ? SIP != VoIP so you shouldn't have issues... – John T Dec 24 '10 at 5:27
You can run SIP on any port you like, but how you change it will depend on the kit you have so what SIP/VoIP apps are you using? – Linker3000 Dec 24 '10 at 11:31
To add on to Linker's comment, a lot will depend on your setup and your service provider. We really can't tell you what is possible for your current situation without knowing anything about it. – MaQleod Aug 28 '11 at 5:32
