    If you look in the iCloud backup settings on the phone it will show which apps and app data is getting backed up and how much space it will take. Most apps give you the option of backing up just settings or settings and data.

    I recently restored when I went from a 4S to the new iPhone 5 and my texts were there, but I am using Messages. So I am not sure if they came in as part of the restore or only because they were stored on the Messages servers?
