The problem is the program that actually backs up the messages.  I performed a backup with one program, reset my phone, and restored with the exact same program and the date/time stamps was set to the time of the restore for ALL files.  

It depends on the information saved by the program performing the backup.  You will not be able to restore them from the carrier.

You will need to look at the different programs that do the backup to see how they timestamp the messages.  I used SMS Backup+ this last time and it seems to have kept the correct date/time stamps AND it copied them to Gmail, which means they are now searchable.
