My iphone 4s has been moving slow lately. I know that restoring the phone can help but I dont want to lose all of the text messages that I have. Does icloud backup text messages so that if i restore my phone I get all of them back?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    is long as you have your phone synced to itunes and make sure you have everything synced up after restore itunes will ask do you want to restore as a new phone or back up from "you phones name" and i have restored like 20 times in the last week and my text messages do come back ... hope this helps

    yea just sync your phone to itunes instead of cloud but make sure to go under "yourphone" in itunes and go through all the tabs backing everything up because by default not much is set to sync so just make sure all boxes are check for back up and you should be good to go
