You can use Insert to place the appropriate EdgeForm directive
in the Graphics3D object. To get no liones at all you want to 
insert EdgeForm[] at position {1,1}.

    Needs[ "Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`"]

    gr = SphericalPlot3D[ 2, {theta, 0, Pi}, {phi, 0, 2 Pi}]


    Show[ Insert[ gr, EdgeForm[],  {1,1}]]


I hope this helps,
