Hello,
My friend bought iphone 4S yesterday and he created an apple ID after punching his credit card details. Am surprised why is it not free of charge ? I had created an apple ID 2 years back but i never paid a single penny.

Apple ID accounts are free. He will not be charged. It was a temporary hold, usually for just $1, to verify that the account is active. Once confirmed, the hold will be cancelled. On the off chance that the charge does go through, he can use the "Report a Problem" link in iTunes to get the charge refunded.

Is this something new? I've never heard of this or had a temp charge hold.
