Should be D.
A and B are out because there is no verb for people.
C is out because it implies "In the last year there are many people"
E wrongly uses while.

The sentence has introductory phrase parallel and verb missing issue:
Main clause missing verb – many people are – eliminate A, B and C

A. Because of wireless service costs plummeting in the last year, and as
Mobile phones are increasingly common, many people.
B. As the cost of wireless service plummeted in the last year and as mobile
Phones became increasingly common, many people.
C. In the last year, with the cost of wireless service plummeting, and mobile
Phones have become increasingly common, there are many people.
D. With the cost of wireless service plummeting in the last year and mobile Phones becoming increasingly common, many people are [Hold it]
E. While the cost of wireless service has plummeted in the last year and
Mobile phones are increasingly common, many people are. [cost of wireless service has plummeted .. and Mobile phones are – not parallel – eliminate it]

D seems correct

A & B seems to be missing the verb 'are'. C does not seem correct because it would state 'there are many people now' - now would be misplaced. E's structure is not parallel.
