PhoneView can do that, unfortunately it's not free.

I purchased it a while ago, you can export messages but you can't import them back to the iphone :(

Well, if you're jailbroken you can back up/restore the entire database with the following file:
/private/var/mobile/Library/SMS/sms.db

Not sure about importing.. but backing up your iPhone through iTunes works just as well.

However, I think you'll need a jailbroken iPhone to backup and restore SMS and MMS.. the restore part I am very uncertain about.

Sorry to reply an old topic but recently we can simply use iCloud.
