Lifting a credit freeze to apply for credit

Dear Experian,

I do not want to lift my security freeze but want to apply for a new credit card. Is that possible to do without lifting the freeze?


Recovering a lost PIN when your credit file is frozen

Dear Experian,

I lost my pin for credit thaws and freezes. How do I go about getting another one? Can I do it over the phone or would it be better if I did that in writing?
