SMS Backup - Alternate way?

Can I backup my SMS and MMS simple by backing up mmssms.db found in /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/? The reason I'm asking this is because TB and other SMS takes about 10-15 minutes to just restore.

Also, if I do just backup that file, can I put it into other ROMs (AOSP, TW, etc.) ?
