I wud also go for choice 'D'

A. Lacks parallelism: wireless service costs plummeting in the last year, and as mobile phones are increasingly common, many people
Also it lacks the verb in the clause "many people....."

B. "---- many people now using their mobile..." The verb 'are' is missing here

C. This also lacks parallelism.. "...with the cost of wireless service plummeting, and mobile phones have become increasingly"

E. "While......." seems illogical, as you are not contrasting something as against other.

D has the proper form of verb 'are', has parallel sentence structure.

I would go with D as well. The only thing that bothers me is the present tense 'plummeting' with the past tense of 'last year'.
