I played the trumpet for 11 years now... but i have put it down for the last year and a half and I have completely gone blank. I just joined a Jazz band and I can play fine, my chops are getting back in shape, but I have forgotten:
Say I have two measures of music. The last note of the first measure has a flat sign, and it is connected to the first note of the second measure which happens to be the same note. Is this note still flat? or is it natural again and it is just slurred? I hope this makes sense

What your saying is kind of confusing because it can't be slured if its the same note.

If the notes are the same, the second is a tied note, and is not played but is added to the first the increase it's time value.
