I am new to all of this(COMPLETELY!) So, I was wondering is someone could tell me then...

If I wanted to create an application on a mobile phone that would, for example, say 'You are in Liverpool', when in Liverpool and 'You are in Cheltenham' when in Cheltenham, how would I go about doing this, i.e. where do i begin in the process of creating a mobile phone application which isbased on location? I take it i would have to use j2me?

Cheers

Yes, and the Location API.

I forget the JSR number for Location API, but it is out there and not too difficult to use.

If you google for "Location API Java", you can find the answer to that yourself ;-)

Of course, if you don't understand the lingo, you might want to start with something smaller. Perhaps just learning the APIs available with J2ME and writing simple programs. As a start, you will need to learn about CLDC and MIDP which are both part of J2ME. Again, you can google for more information or buy a book from your favorite online bookstore.
