How to restore only iPhone text messages to a restored/blank iPhone? Does 3rd party software exist?

I have an iPhone 4 that has had some software problems and had to be restored.  Once I restore through iTunes,  my problems are resolved but once I go through the second step of restoring from a backup ( so that my text messages/settings/photos etc are restored) the problem resurfaces.  I currently have access to my iPhones text message history but the previously mentioned software bug is back.  

Is there some 3rd party software that will let me back up my iPhone text message history, then restore the iPhone to factory default, and then only restore my text messages?  I don't mind losing everything else but the text messages are a must have.

I'm willing to spend good money for a 3rd party application that will simplify the backup and restore process if one exists.
