Yes, and no... If you do a factory restore of your iphone, it will completely wipe your iPhone's history away. That's why you want to make sure that you have a working backup of your iPhone data before doing the restore. Before you do a Restore, iTunes will ask you if you would like to make a backup of your iPhone, which I would highly suggest you do.

After the Restore has completed, and you sync your iPhone to iTunes for the first time, you will have the option to setup your iPhone "as a new iPhone" or "Restore from the backup of:" your iphones backup copy. When you restore from the backup, you should retain all your previous settings, text messages, apps, etc.

You connect your phone through iTunes, you synch your contacts, music, text message, photos, apps, etc., and you can restore from backup at anytime.

Be easy! These are good solutions for this issue:

If you have already backed up your iPhone with iTunes, you can get the deleted text messages back by the following steps using iTunes:
Click the File menu and select Devices > Restore from Back up.
Or
Open the iOS device's Summary tab. There are two ways to access this:
Click the device button in the upper right corner.(If viewing the iTunes Store, click the Library button in the upper right corner. The device button will then be visible.)
From any view in iTunes, click the View menu and select Show Sidebar. Select your iOS device in iTunes under Devices.
Click the Restore Backup button.

For iTunes 10.7 or earlier:
Right-click (or Control-click) the device and choose Restore from Backup

If haven't had time to back up your iPhone before the deletion, there are also two methods for you to try:
1. Recover the text messages directly using a third party data recovery software;
2. Recover the text messages under DFU mode.
