The backup should contain text messages. The backup includes (from http://support.apple.com/kb/PH12519):
- Photos and videos in your Camera Roll
- Device settings
- App data
- Home screen and app organization
- iMessage, text (SMS), and MMS messages
- Visual Voicemail

Question for randers4. How do you get them to go back onto your new device? I swapped my iPad2 for another iPad2. It was not responding. I backed up my old iPad to iTunes, then signed in on my new one. iCloud's working, but only today's messages appear?

iCloud doesn't store your historical messages. They are only contained in your backup. Did your restore the iCloud backup of your old iPad to your new one yet?
