Because of wrong comparison eliminate A,B,C. Between options D and E, option D is more concise

(A) Unlike typical mobile phone contracts, the frequency of use does not affect the monthly cost of flat-rate plans
(B) Unlike with typical mobile phone contracts, the frequency of use does not affect the monthly cost of flat-rate plans
(C) Unlike the typical mobile phone contract, the monthly cost of flat-rate plans are not affected by the frequency of use
(D) Unlike that of typical mobile phone contracts, the monthly cost of flat-rate plans is not affected by the frequency of use
(E) Unlike with the monthly cost of typical mobile phone contracts, the monthly cost of flat-rate plans are not affected by the frequency of use

Yeah D looks fine indeed.

E looked promising but that 'with' in unlike with was totally unnecessary

Damn you E

D is our best choice here guys

Cheers!

We want to compare the 'cost of flat-rate plans' with the 'cost of typical mobile phone'. Only D compares the cost.

Only D and E stand a chance comparison wise.

However, in E we have a problem of Subj- verb Agreement.

Unlike with the monthly cost of typical mobile phone contracts, the monthly cost of flat-rate plans are not affected by the frequency of use

SO D is correct.
