can I use itunes to back up iphone text messages?

I am wanting to delete all text messages off of my iphone because it looks like they are taking up too much of the storage. I have seen that I can save my texts using itunes but haven't really figured out how.

A lot of the googled links that I check lead to different programs to use and not itunes.

Can anyone give me a clear answer on this and if so lead me to some simple directions on how to do this?

I don't think it's possible to use Itunes but you should have ICloud to back them up to. However, messages generally use up less than 1Gig so I don't think you're going to save much space by deleting messages. Pictures are the worst and try deleting the apps you don't use.
