    I'm not sure if this is the best place for this question...but...
    I am transferring photos from a phone (LG) via Bluetooth. The pairing worked and now the photos are transferring to the Documents folder, which is fine, but I'd love to change the destination folder.

    It seems like there should be an easy way to do this, but I can't find it. This is on a MacBook Pro running Tiger (10.4.11) (Yes I know I should upgrade).

    Is there a 3rd party app that would allow me to set up a destination folder that files from this device would always go to?

    Yes there is - had the same problem myself.

    Go to System Preferences --> Bluetooth --> Sharing. Click 'Bluetooth File Exchange' and a series of menus will appear on the right. The 4th of these is 'Folder for accepted items', and that's where you can change it.
