A. Because of wireless service costs plummeting in the last year, and as mobile phones are increasingly common, many people
-- INCORRECT.. 1) Because of + N is not parallel with as + clause 2) many people need an active verb

B. As the cost of wireless service plummeted in the last year and as mobile phones became increasingly common, many people
-- INCORRECT.. Even though the first error found in (A) is rectified,error #2 remains

C. In the last year, with the cost of wireless service plummeting, and mobile phones have become increasingly common, there are many people
-- INCORRECT.. Meaning change.ONLY the cost of wireless service plummeted in the last year.

D. With the cost of wireless service plummeting in the last year and mobile phones becoming increasingly common, many people are
-- CORRECT

E. While the cost of wireless service has plummeted in the last year and mobile phones are increasingly common, many people are
-- INCORRECT..There is no contrast in the original meaning.The use of "while" is incorrect.
