Sin solución de continuidad

It's difficult without any context... "Seamless" means "sin solución de continuidad", i.e., without any interruptions.
"Fritz" has got me stumped... it's old English slang for a German, but I don't see how that relates to mobile telephones.
"Waiver" is "renuncia" in Spanish, a rather legal term.

Hope this is of some use to you.

If this is part of a phrase, "on the fritz", it means "not working properly."

"Seamless" refers to a smooth and efficient transition between components or phases of an activity. Gear shifting in a car is not seamless because you can feel it; if you couldn't, it would be seamless.

Seamless means that all components fit together and no additional actions have to be taken or interruptions will occur.

The only thing I can think of for 'fritz' is the American expression meaning 'caput'.

Waiver is a legal term and I checked my legal dictionary for this.

Hope this helps,
