    I want to backup all SMS from my old phone (Galaxy S2) and restore them in my new phone (Galaxy Nexus). I want the text messages to be restored exactly as they were with original times and dates and phone numbers.

    So far I have tried MyBackup Pro and SMS Backup & Restore. Neither seems to restore the SMS with original dates. In SMS Backup & Restore I had tons of options like "date format", "add name", "add human readable date" and so on.

    I just want the SMS to be imported exactly as if they were normal SMS coming in at their original time and date. How can I achieve this?

    Try Go SMS Pro. Back up texts, email the file to yourself and then follow instructions in email on how to restore. Can't see why the dates would change as all data would be coming from the data file.
