The correct phrase grammatically is "different from". Many people incorrectly say "different than". Both phrases are used but only the first is correct. "I am different from you because I like red and you like blue." The phrases "different with" and "different to" are not correct phrases. "Similar to" is a correct phrase. "That shirt is similar to a shirt I already own." "Similar with" is not a correct phrase. I hope this helps!
