How to Backup Text Messages on iPhone

I had an appointment at the genius bar today and they restored my iPhone 4S to factory settings. i was told all my texts (SMS, MMS and iMessage) were backed up. I was told to open an iTunes and setup the iPhone as a "new phone" rather than restore frommy backup file. Does anyone know how I can restore just the SMS/MMS/iMessage part of the backup? Thanks!
