I am very new to programming and to Flash Builder, so pardon my ignorance here. When using the "Geolocation" sample in Flash Builder how can I get it display "city and state" as opposed to the coordinates? Is there a simple way of doing this? Thanks!

You will need to convert them. There are solutions to convert coordinates into textual locations. I didn't search for an offline solution but it might exist for something as general as city and state.

Google can convert them for you if you have an internet connection.

Read this article : http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/geocoding/index.html#ReverseGeocoding

You will connect to their webservice and handle the output  corresponding to the adress linked to your coordinates. You can llok in the result for a less specific one with only the city/state/country.
