Google "pn2222 datasheet" and "2n2222 datasheet" - the technical spec's can be reconcilled to your application. dilandou is right, but your specific application might make a difference to whether the 2n2222 is OK.

The PN2222 and 2N2222 are one in the same. The difference is that the 2N2222 is in TO-18 metal cover, and the PN2222 is in TO-92 cover.
