I have an iPhone that I need to wipe because I need to send it to Apple for the Lock Button Replacement Program.

The only issue is I need to restore my iPhone and I don't want to lose my text messages and iMessages. If I backup my iPhone to iTunes will I be able to recover them when I get my iPhone back and still use them with the 'messages' application and not a 'SQL lite' app?


An iTunes backup includes text messages. See this Apple page for what is included. Notice that to restore everything, including passwords, you need to encrypt the iTunes backup with a password.
