Assunto:  somebody else, pls?
Mensagem:  And I found this grammar point site, with a very similar sentence to yours.

Charlie didn’t know whether to call or text to find out about her plans.

So the wether have fat chances again.   Anyway, I can´t affirm it´s a rule.  Notice that
it sounds like two choices again, except that Charlie "seems" like having to do something, that is, he doesn´t have much choice but calling.

I wouldn´t be surprised if somebody else would say you could use both, depending on context.
