Will using Decipher Phone Refresh/Decipher Activity Transfer overwrite my existing data?

Unfortunately, yes! Decipher Phone Refresh creates a “filtered” backup from your original iPhone backup, for using with “Restore Backup” in iTunes. Restoring a backup in iTunes replaces (overwrites) your existing data with the contents of the backup, so restoring the Decipher Phone Refresh filtered backup will replace the contents on your iPhone just like restoring a normal backup.
